tv At This Hour With Kate Bolduan CNN April 29, 2021 8:00am-9:00am PDT
hello, everyone. thank you so much for joining us. at this hour, president biden will soon be leaving for georgia. a state that was obviously key to his presidential victory. he is marking the 100th day of his presidency and also will be kicking off a nationwide push to sell his ambitious and expensive new economic plan. a plan he laid out last night during his first address to a joint session of congress. in all, $4 trillion of programs. the latest focused on education and childcare. altogether, it is a breath taking rework of the role government plays in our society.
let's get over to the white house. jeremy diamond is standing by for us. jeremy, it is ambitious. how is he going to pay for it? that is where the rubber meets the road. . w what you are hearing? >> president biden said he is planning on paying for this american families plan by increasing taxes on the wealthiest of american individuals and corporations. and we know that president biden according to my colleague, he spent a lot of time yesterday finessing that portion specifically of the speech. he knew this was going to be the best opportunity to make the case to americans over the noise of republicans who oppose the tax increases that it is about paying their fair share to pay for programs that will benefit the country as a whole. we heard the white house press secretary continuing to make that case today as well. listen. >> his promise to the american people is that people who are in the 99% of people who are making less than that are not going to have their taxes go up. what he looked at is the president of all the country is
how to have the smallest impact on the smallest number of people. he thinks people making that amount of money can afford to pay more so we can invest in the next generation, invest in childcare, in paid leave, things people need across the country. >> and, kate, the president will continue to make that case today as he heads to atlanta where he's holding a drive in rally. one other thing we heard from the president yesterday he is was framing the issues including the trillions of dollars in spending as matters of domestic importance and also in terms of national security. and the global competition between democracies and awe to beingcies. i spent time with the national security adviser jake sullivan what they've been telling me is this is something that president biden is framing. it is something he sees as central to the mission as president of the united states. he believes that the united states and the world really are at an inflection point and history will judge the united states as well as his presidency
over how he is able to answer this question of can democracy work in the 21st century and compete with these autocracies? it is something that is on his mind. he brings it up in all kinds of meetings whether it is talking to the team of nasa engineers or if he is talking about car batteries, electronic vehicle batteries in a meeting at the white house as it was described to me last week. so something the president very much focused on and we heard that come through in the speech last night. he made the closing pitch for the trillions of dollars of investments here in the u.s. kate? >> over and over again. jeremy had great reporting on this. you should all check it out. thank you very much. appreciate it. so there is also this today. a major move by the justice department against donald trump's long time attorney rudy giuliani. federal investigators escalating a criminal investigation that has been on going into giuliani in a big way now. an fbi raid of his home in new york city seizing some of his belongings. this is all about his dealings
with ukraine. joining me right now is paula reid who is following all of the details here. paula, what more you are learning about the raid, about his investigation? >> well, kate, cnn learned that in addition to the raid of his home, federal agents also searched his park avenue office where they seized a computer belonging to one of his executive assistants and i learned that they also served that assistant with a subpoena to appear before a grand jury next month. signalling that mr. giuliani's legal problems are far from over. >> reporter: federal investigators conducted a raid at rudy giuliani's home and office in new york city wednesday. seizing electronic devices from former president donald trump's personal attorney. >> it's a very aggressive step. i know the folks at the sdny. they would only do something like this if they believed very str strongly there is something worth while for pursuing. >> an attorney tells cnn that
search warrant was related to a investigation into foreign lobbying violations. especially communicates between giuliani and right-wing columnist john solomon. solomon wrote op-eds about the pro trump and andy biden conspiracy theories that were pedalled by giuliani. after review, the hill found flaw ands his columns on ukraine including a failure to provide key disclosures. giuliani denies any wrongdoing and has not yet been charged. his son argue this is was politically motivated. >> this is disgusting. this is absolutely absurd. and it's the continued polarization of the justice department that we have seen. >> reporter: this brings into stark focus giuliani's actions in ukraine that have been under incont intense scrutiny since 2019. he's been under scrutiny whether he lobbied ukrainian officials to open an investigation into then presidential candidate go biden while working as an
attorney for former president trump. >> did you ask the ukraine to investigate joe biden? >> no. actually, i didn't. >> you never asked anything about joe bide snen. >> the only thing i asked about joe biden is get to the bottom how it was that the person pinted dismissed the case against them. >> you did ask ukraine to look into joe bide snen. >> of course i did. >> you just said you didn't. >> he threatened to withhold aid to ukraine and withheld a white house visit for the newly elected ukrainian president in order to further their efforts. the main focus of trump's first impeachment trial. investigators also want to know if giuliani acted as an illegal lobbyist on the behave of ukrainian officials. for example, giuliani's insistence that the u.s. ambassador to ukraine be fired. trump ultimately did fire the well respected ambassador. >> our ukraine policy has been thrown into disarray. and shady interests, the world over, have learned how little it
takes to remove an american ambassador who does not give them what they want. >> reporter: two ukrainian s associated were indicted for funneling illegal money. they allegedly helped introduce giuliani to ukrainian officials. both have pleaded not guilty. parnas spoke out against his former associate saying that everything he did was at the direction of giuliani and for former president donald trump's political future. >> that was the most important thing is for him to stay out in front of the four years and keep the fight going. i mean, there was no other reason for doing it. >> reporter: former president trump weighed in earlier today on the giuliani investigation and just as he did when he was in the white house and repeatedly asked about his personal attorney's unusual activities, the president defended giuliani as a great patriot and said he believes what happened yesterday was unfair. kate?
>> paula, thank you. do want to turn now to the unfolding crisis that is playing out in india. the tragedy there is becoming honestly difficult to describe. the best way to do it is simply through the image thats that ar coming out of india. hospitals are totally overwhelmed. they are facing shortages of oxygen. crematoriums are overrun trying to keep up with the never ending line of bodies that they see. they're reporting now more than 379,000 new cases of coronavirus there in just a single day. the death toll appears to be wildly undercounted at this point. so much so they're now being forced to carry out mass cremations in public parks and parking lots. cnn's sam kylie is on the ground for us in new delhi. sam, just describe what you have
been watching all day ros, repog on and what we're looking at behind you now. >> well, kate, i'm at the crematorium right at the end of the day. in fact, it's a part of the day which would normally be closed, closed to us and the public and closed to the dead. but it is the dead who continue to burn here. just as they had earlier in the day to que. people had to take tickets and wait in line on gurneys. pt they were treated with great respect but queing so they could be burned, cremated here. earlier on about 10 minutes ago i'm talking there were 50 fires burning. this is actually the overspill, kate, from the main crematorium. the traditional one which is just on the other side of this wall here. they've now been able to go back to using that. they started the day that side
of the wall. they moved across to here. and now they're going back the other side. now they reckon at the beginning of the day they thought they were going to be dealing with 150 people. i can tell you that figure, they don't know how many they dealt w i've been here most of the day and certainly in excess of that. other figures are about at least 600 people dying every day from the covid-19 virus. but there is an assumption here both in terms of the numbers for infections and the numbers for people dying of the covid-19 infection, of the covid-19 virus. the figures are woefully underreported. people are dying at home, not being counted. and, of course, the testing capabilities here are also being overwhelmed. most people, kate, are dying as a result of as phyxiation. they're dying from lack of oxygen. there is a massive international effort to donate oxygen.
they're trying to get oxygen into india to keep india breathing, kate. >> it's -- it's hard to describe as you are just what you're seeing around you. we can see especially as night has set in, you can really see the smoke that is just enveloping you and your team. we can see it. how does it feel? >> well, kate, it's kind of you to ask. i don't really care about how i feel. i think what really matters is that whatever my shortness of breath is maybe a consequence of breathing in in some smoke, nothing can compare to what the people who are seeing their last rights served here went through in the last few days. we've seen ques of vehicles with oxygen bottles resting next to them and pipes going into people. some of them breathing their last breath on the back of rickshaws. there are people on the ground in hotels.
people dying at home without any treatment at all. people that are three to a bed. the whole public health service here has been overwhelmed, kate. and overwhelmed. this is what indians are telling me, not that i'm saying to them, as it were. indians are saying it's been overwhelmed for two reasons. one is government was complaisant with regards to the covid-19 pandemic, believing a couple months ago they achieved victory. some kind of herd immunity had been achieved. and above all, because they favored political campaigning over maintaining the lockdowns protect people. tens of thousands of people have been attending political rallies. there is even a voting going on in at least one state today. a lot of election results due to be counted over the next coupling weeks. all of this involves super spreader events. you had the hindu festival on the river in which over two million people participated. all as part of the enthusiasm for hindu nationalism. the results of that are a public
health him? a country that has a space program that is overwhelmed and the results of that is that. kate? >> sam, earlier today i just saw a cart load and cart loads of wood that they were bringing in because it's, as you said, people are in que. they're waiting in line to cremate their loved ones. have you had a chance to -- i don't know, speak with the families or speak with the people that are now tasked with -- i can't imagine what they're having to deal with, just having to -- they're burning them in just right behind you. >> yeah. i mean, the third pile down over there, i spoke to the gentleman who set that -- who built the fire. he was assisted by workers here. he was on his own. he collected his friend from the hospital where he had died because his friends were too ill with covid-19 to look after his
friend or even collect the body. he arranged for the cremation. he waited through the day to do it. lit the fire. helped build the fire. and he said farewell to his friend. he was in one sm ways one of the luckier ways. he was able here to say the last rights. many people here have been buried without last rights. they are being treated. there are prayers being set over them. they are treated with great respect. they're not keen on talking because they've been rushing backwards and forwards. even the mayor of new delhi called for extra wood to be delivered. there are very large piles of it against the wall here in the crematorium. kate? >> the death and tragedy is horrifying scale. they're report ogeing on now. sam, thank you for tbeing there. that is unbelievable. coming up for us still this hour, what happens now after a judge rules the body cam footage of the shooting of andrew brown

back now to the justice department's major move against donald trump's long time attorney. the fbi raided rudy giuliani's home and seized some belongings yesterday. in doing so, escalating the criminal investigation into giuliani over his dealings with ukraine while he was working for president trump. joining me right now is andrew mccabe, senior law enforcement anl. g analyst. what do they have to provide to a judge to get a search warrant? what can we glean from this? >> you can glean that they not only satisfied what you have to
present to the judge which is basically, you have to show the judge that you have probable cause to believe that there is evidence of a crime in the location that you are searching. clearly, the judge agreed that there was probable cause to believe that and sign a warrant. but even before they could go get the warrant signed, they had to have some very tough conversations in the department of justice. to show the highest levels of the justice department that it was worth searching an attorney's home and office to find criminal evidence -- evidence of criminal conduct. >> that's what i was going do ask you. the fact they took this step against an attorney let alone a president's -- the former president's attorney is significant here. can you explain why? >> it really is. you know, the justice system has great respect for the relationship between the attorneys and clients. it is, of course, privileged and the communications between the attorneys and clients cannot be -- you can't compel those
communications or reveal them in any way. so you have to go over a very, very high bar to convince the justice department that it's worth the effort and the legal risk of executing a search warrant at an attorney's home or office. in this case, we're talking about the former -- maybe current attorney to the former president of the united states. the that is an incredibly tough case to make. they clearly made it. and then presented their case to the judge and that's how it got yesterday. >> because the key question is giuliani being trump's attorney, attorney client privilege obviously we heard of that so often. and where is the line here? i mean, it's clearly something they considered extensively before they would move in this direction. >> that's right. so what they'll have to do first is everything that they have taken in the course of the search warrants will have to first be revealed by what they call a team. prosecutors and agents who are not connected to the prosecution
in any way. they will remove from that material anything that could be covered by the attorney-client privilege. and what is left will go to the investigative team. what they're looking for is not communications between giuliani and trump. they're looking for communications between giuliani and other people. maybe the people he was meeting with in ukraine, people like lev parnas and fruman whoe may have been contracting with and financial transactions with. so there is a lot of potential evidence there that would not come under the attorney-client prif privilege. if this happened yesterday, what would the next step in the investigation look like? >> the next step is obviously that process of going through everything that they've collected. first to review it for privilege and later to consider it as evidence. that's going to take a while. but we also got a hint from paula's reporting earlier that they are also serving grand jury subpoenas on other people who
could be key witnesses. >> yeah. >> the assistant. so she'll be coming in front of the grand jury, i guess in, a month from now. and that is an opportunity to really get someone on the record in front of a grand jury to build that criminal case. so it's -- this is going to take quite some time. but it's clear they're not leaving any rock unturned. >> no kidding. good to see you. thank you for coming in. coming up, president biden laying out ambitious plans to congress but also key senators are saying they're not buying it. where do democrats go from here? finding new routes to reach your customers, and new ways for them to reach you... is what business is all about. it's what the united states postal service has always been about. so as your business changes, we're changing with it. with e-commerce that runs at the speed of now. next day and two-day shipping nationwide. same day shipping across town. returns right from the doorstep, and deliveries seven days a week.
it's a whole new world out there. let's not keep it waiting. advanced non-small cell lung cancer can change everything. but your first treatment could be a chemo-free combination of two immunotherapies that works differently. it could mean a chance to live longer. opdivo plus yervoy is for adults newly diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread, tests positive for pd-l1, and does not have an abnormal egfr or alk gene. it is the only fda-approved combination of two immunotherapies. opdivo plus yervoy equals
a chance for more starry nights. more sparkly days. more sunny mornings. opdivo and yervoy can cause your immune system to harm healthy parts of your body during and after treatment. these problems can be severe and lead to death. see your doctor right away if you have a cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; irregular heartbeat; diarrhea; constipation; severe stomach pain, nausea or vomiting; dizziness; fainting; eye problems; extreme tiredness; changes in appetite, thirst or urine; rash; itching; confusion; memory problems; muscle pain or weakness; joint pain; flushing; or fever. these are not all the possible side effects. problems can occur together and more often when opdivo is used with yervoy. tell your doctor about all medical conditions including immune or nervous system problems, if you've had or plan to have an organ or stem cell transplant, or received chest radiation. here's to a chance to live longer. ask your doctor about chemo-free opdivo plus yervoy. thank you to all those in our clinical trials.
any moment now, president biden will be heading to georgia. he's taking off and heading to georgia. when he hits the ground, he got a big day planned. this comes on the heels of his first major address to congress. he is now turning his focus to trying to sell the sweep changes to government policy and the huge pricetag to the american people that he laid out in that speech. already though, it is clear just after last night's speech that president faces an uphill battle
in congress with what he is propose will. our reporter just spoke with joe manchin. what did he tell you? >> he has concerns. he wants to scrutinize how this agenda will come forward. joe biden laid out an expansive view of the government trillions of dollars in new spending programs that he argues will prop up the economy. but he has to get that through the senate including the 50/50 senate with joe manchin, the power west virginia democrat has a key role. he made clear he has concerns with the pricetag. he has concerns with the tax increases. and he also wants to make sure they work with republicans. are you concerned about this push for a more expansive government? >> certainly, yeah. i am. and i want to see the details as we talked before. but we can't overreach the point to where we stymie investments, stymie growth for 2022, 2023 and
on. >> when you look at the pricetag -- >> it's a lot pt we have $1.9 trillion that hasn't even gone out the door yet. we need to pay for it. we're $28.5 trillion. now that's not ussustainable. >> there is a push to do it by democratic votes alone. by reconciliation. >> i've never been for. that i told him i'm not for. that the bottom line is this place has to have a chance to work. >> so with the moment, democratic leaders are considering moving it along. they did on that covid-19 relief plan that led to the $1.9 trillion package going into law, trying to do that with a piece, at least a significant portion of the biden infrastructure package. about tout do that, kate, as you know, you need all 50 democrats to agree and right now at least one democrat is saying no. kate? is. >> and that's the whole ball game. that's why joe manchin is so critical in this moment. thank you.
we appreciate it. joining me for more on this is the democratic congresswoman from michigan. thank you for coming in. >> good morning, kate. great to be with you. thanks for having me. >> thank you. what what do you say to what we just heard from joe manchin? he is not sold on -- definitely not on the pricetag. he's not sold on the scope of what joe biden laid out last night either. biden needs the vote. >> well, here's what i have to say. i'm actually very excited. i believe that this is a once in a generation time of opportunity. we've all been through a horrific year with covid-19. it you shined light on fractures in our society. if you look at this country in the last 100 years, the great depression did that. we had seniors living on the street that were dying because they couldn't eat. they didn't have a place to live. and we passed a program known as
social security. then world war ii came. the great war. we did the gi bill. now we're up side down again. we see fractures in our society. we need to create jobs. we have roads in bad shape. we have lead still in pipes. broadband -- schoolchildren have not been able to learn. these are programs we need to fix. and create jobs and we take care of our communities. but we also need to look at things like childcare. i have women that i'm working with that have millions of women that have left the workforce. they can't afford to go back. i had one person who said to me, they don't want to go to work. well, i know a woman that is working two jobs, still living below poverty line and childcare is $16 an hour and it's more than she is paid. i would love joe manchin and he is a great friend, you nknow, w
can all express feelings. we have to sit down at the table. this is a once in our generation opportunity to bring programs that matter to our community. i applaud the president. i'm going to be one that is going to be a partner. >> of course, this is the beginning. this is not the end of a negotiation. that's very clear. when you hooklook at it, when y come out, it is so big. as you're saying, once in a generation opportunity. it is so big in what he is proposing and asking, i want -- needs -- you need votes to do it. no matter what is being said out in the country. you need the votes. what is the strategy in proposing this when very clearly he's turning off moderates right now? >> well, i'm somebody that tries to bring everybody to the table. i'm going over and talking to my republican colleagues last night ichlt been talking to them this morning. the fact of the matter is we can look at the existing programs we
have and we spend more money on health care. it's time to fix our program. we do the very unnecessary expenditure that's go to bureaucracy that doesn't work and actually put it into delivering health care. you know, there are -- there is more than one way to figure out how we improve our systems, how we pay for them. and that's what real policy work does. we have to stand on the table. we have to have real discussions. i think there is a real need, a lot of mhurting people and now s the time. two more questions for you. what did you think seeing two women behind joe biden on the podium last night? >> incredible. you couldn't -- when i think about what it was like for me when i was interviewed for my first job at general motors and
when it was asked why would a woman want to work here? i look at my history in the workplace, seeing two women there last night just -- it's a lot of hard work. that put them there. and women bring a different perspective. you know, we're problem solvers. i mean i'm not saying people listening out there, i love men, but i do think that because we're multitaskers and we always have multiple balls in the air weeshgs like okay, how do we get this done? and seeing i've known both of them for a long time -- >> you can say it. i'm okay with. that we speak truth to each other. i know that as well. >> i know joe biden does. i have to tell you, those were three people that were sort of a very emotional night that way. >> yeah. good to see you, congresswoman. thank you so much for taking the time. >> thank you. >> long negotiation ahead. appreciate it. coming up for us, a judge denies request to release body cam
footage from the shooting of andrew brown jr. for now. one of andrew brown's sons is our guest next. their only friend? the open road. i have friends. [ chuckles ] well, he may have friends, but he rides alone. that's jeremy, right there! we're literally riding together. he gets touchy when you talk about his lack of friends. can you help me out here? no matter why you ride, progressive has you covered with protection starting at $79 a year. well, we're new friends. to be fair. eh, still.

police body camera video showing the killing of andrew brown jr. will be viewed way his family but not released to the public right now. that ruling came from a judge in elizabeth city, north carolina. the video is becoming even more central now because the family and the district attorney are offering conflicting accounts of what happened, what is seen on this svideo. the da says the video shows deputies opened fire after brown made contact with an officer with his car. the family says what they have seen in video is an execution. that brown was shot while sitting in his car with his hands on the steering wheel. joining me right now is andrew brown jr.'s son and reverend greg drumright. thank you both for being here.
jarrod, how are you doing today with following that ruling and just with everything that's going on? >> um, you know, i'm dealing with it for the most part. i did want the media to see how my father was done. but, you know, i'm happy that we do get a chance to see all five videos instead of the 20 second clip. >> what -- what are you feeling -- what are you feeling about -- how are you feeling about seeing it? i know that my understanding is that you had not seen the first video that had been shown to other members of your family. are you planning -- are you going look at all of it? are you going to watch all these videos? >> yes. i do plan on -- as soon as they give us a call that we can come look at it, i will be attending that. and my brother, he explained to me in detail exactly what took
place and, you know, i felt my brother praying. i felt what he was going through. i felt like he suffered. it took minutes before he was awake. i know there were long minutes for him. you know, just praying for him and to know how they did my father. >> what is the conversation been like among your family? you talked about your brother. and he spoke so powerfully about what he -- what he saw. what is the conversation been like within your family about seeing these videos? i mean, your brother was understandably and very visibly disturbed when he spoke about what he had seen. >> it's hard. i know a horrible feeling for my brother to look at our father
being shot, being killed. you know? being in fear of his life. i you know it's heartbreaking. he knows exactly how i feel. the feeling is really heartbreaking is one word. it's unexplainable. >> yeah. do you know when you all will have access to those videos? >> i believe within the next ten days. within the next ten days, they're ordered, the judge ordered for the videos to be released to us, all five of them. >> reverend, the family -- we heard from jarrod's brother. the family called this an execution. saying that what they saw was -- what they see in this video was that he was trying to get away. the that he was sitting in the car with his hands on the steering wheel. the district attorney said
something very different in court. he drove forward and made contact with deputies and then they opened fire. how do you square with these two things? i know you had been in court yesterday. >> yes, i was there in court. i was this court with the family yesterday when d.a. argued those allegations. and when hearing the counsel say that the killing of andrew brown jr. was justified, it was traumatic for all of us and, of course, for the family who was there simply asking, petitioning for the release of these videos. so the family just doesn't know. doesn't know all of the facts. the transparency has been grotesquely lacking in this case. the community is tired of
waiting. and the family is also at a place where they are just fed up with the lack of transparency. seems like there is something being hidden. they have a right. of course, you know the laws in the state of north carolina, the world knows now, the laws in north carolina are zparnlging for families such as the brown family in this case. and that's why we're working very hard to put pressure on this district attorney's office, on our governor's office. i sit on the north carolina court's commission. i spoke with the state attorney general this morning. putting pressure on all players and pillars that be. to transform accountability and policing and overcriminalization of blacks in north carolina. >> jarrod, just final question to you. this is -- this is the beginning of what is going to be a very
long hard process for you and your family. not only having to view the videos but grieving in such a public way. i'm just curious if -- how are you feeling about the process? do you trust the process going forward? >> yes, i trust the process. i know we have strong legal team. and, you know, one thing about it, i am a man of god. i believe in god. and i do believe justice will be served. >> jarrod, thank you for coming on. it feels so inpersonal saying it over television but thank you. thank you for coming on. coming up for us, mike pence's first public speech since leaving office and cnn's new reporting of his strained relationship with donald trump. e world better than olay? olay regenerist faced 131 premium products, from 12 countries, over 10 years. olay's hydration was unbeaten

appearance at a dinner hosted by the palmetto family council in south carolina. sources close to the former vice president tell cnn this is going to be a big moment for pence. he will use this occasion to not only give us a taste of how he plans to capitalize on his time as donald trump's vice president, but also give us a taste of what his own distinct political brand might look like moving forward. of course, pence is a rumored 2024 presidential candidate if his former boss does decide not to go for a comeback bid himself. he will also use this to talk a lot about the -- what he views as the policy achievements of the trump presidency, namely focusing on its actions on abortion and religious freedom since this is going to be a very socially conservative crowd. but after last night's joint address to congress by president biden, he is planning to offer some criticism of the biden agenda. and we can expect to hear quite
a few counterpoints during his speech tonight. >> mike pence offering another republican response to the address to congress. you have new reporting on the strained relationship between pence and donald trump, his former boss. what are you learning. >> reporter: people close to both relationships say it remains strained after trump wanted pence to block the electoral college votes and obviously the former vice president did not agree to go along with that plan. they do remain in touch. however, they've spoken at least once a month since leaving office. but cnn has learned that former president trump was not given a heads up when mike pence went into heart surgery earlier this month. that, in fact, the former president learned about that procedure much like the rest of us, after pence's team put out a public statement. so that is indicative, again, of how strained this relationship remains between the former president and vice president. >> yeah, for sure.
